1987Posted: December 4, 2011
Last night, on my way home from work, a teen stopped me on the sidewalk to sell me a box of chocolate covered almonds. I used to sell boxes of chocolates to raise money for my high school sports teams and I remember how annoying it was when adults ignored me. I handed the kid my $3 and almost immediately felt like I had been had. Why? The packaging looked like it was literally from 1987. I half expected Gary Coleman to jump out of the box. Could the chocolates inside actually be that old?
Afraid to eat them and test my theory myself, I gave the box to Simon. That boy is fearless.
Whoa! Not only did he survive his first bite, he is smiling!
